Your SAP Status

Meeting

You are in good shape and in good standing. Keep up the good work! To remain in good standing you must complete 83% of your unit obligation each semester. Obligation is generally 12 units (6 units if student is only receiving a loan). Undergraduate and credential students who are full-time would need to complete a minimum of 10 units to remain in good standing.

Warning

If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation, you are placed on “warning” for one semester and sent a warning letter outlining what you must do to return to good standing during the subsequent semester of enrollment. In order to regain a good standing status, you must complete 83% of your unit obligation in your warning term. If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation for a second term consecutively, you have lost your eligibility for financial aid.

Probation

You have submitted an appeal and a one-time exception has been granted. You must complete 83% of your unit obligation in your probationary term in order to regain good standing status. If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation for a second term consecutively, you have lost your financial aid eligibility again.

Not Meets

You have a Loss of Eligibility (LOE) for financial aid due to not meeting your Unit Obligation or due to reaching your Unit Cap. Students who complete less than 33% of their unit obligation during a semester automatically lose eligibility for all financial aid programs. Students who have received a warning in the prior semester and fail to complete a minimum of 83% of their unit obligation also lose eligibility for all financial aid programs. If you were previously awarded financial aid, your aid will be cancelled. Due to lack of funds, most programs generally cannot be reinstated after cancellation for satisfactory academic progress problems. For more information, please review the section below on how to regain your eligibility.

Pending

The Financial Aid Office is currently reviewing your file, additional documents may be necessary to complete this review. Make sure to check your email for communication from our office and your Student Center’s To-Do-List for additional documents needed. Your SAP status will be updated to reflect the appropriate status once the review has been completed.

Undetermined

If you are a new HSU student your SAP status has not yet been determined because you have not yet completed your first term at HSU. This process runs after every term once grades are posted. Your SAP status will be updated upon completion of your first term at HSU.
